    angle the rear springs and they act like a sway bar.

    dude I swear we were seperated at birth...

    I think we are building the same car with out knowing it.

    I just picked up a poncho split and a sweet kaiser overider!

    your mattress can chill on the floor, just not for too long:)

    ya old lady will get tired of that sooner or later.

    lord knows mine is understanding but there always comes a time...

    I come across a bunch of over riders all the time just none with the bullets.

    if I come across another one I will send it your way.

    I like the looks of what you are doing with the rear springs, That may have to be used on my 48 this time around.
